Issue: #32June 2013

   June is a busy month, it seems, for just about everyone! There is Father's Day on June 16th. The end of the school year brings Graduations and Teacher Appreciation Days. And then there is the beginning of the traditional Wedding season.

Dads & Grads Display 
   All require that perfect, special, personal gift. I was talking with a customer the other day who was looking for a new baby gift. And I said I always want to give an heirloom. The distinct, unusual gift that hopefully will get passed down. And that's one of the best things about buying handmade - it's not something everyone else attending the wedding will have picked up at Macy's.

   Finding your gift at Crackerjack will set you and your gift apart. I like the idea that the recipient will be able to remember who gave them a gift that bears the hand of the maker every time they use it or look at it.

   After all, do you remember who gave you place setting #3 of your china?

Our Current Zents Favorite 
for Everyone!

   These two Zents products work wonderfully well when mixed together in the palm of your hand, being 3 times more hydrating and lasting 5 times longer! 
Just pat out some lotion in the palm of your hand, spritz on some oil, pat to combine and luxuriate in the most moisturized, non-greasy, healthy-looking skin you can imagine!

   Perfect for summer, and 10 scents to choose from! You deserve to look and feel Zentsational! 

  Have you joined our Birthday Club? We'll send you a gift during your birthday month, and a surprise when you come into the store. Next time you visit us, ask to be signed up!
